Red Carpet Fashion Awards

BDOTW 13 May

Nina Dobrev’s Monique Lhuillier Met Gala look was your best dressed this week.

Even though you guys didn’t rate her, Amber Heard in Emilio Pucci was my best dressed this week by a very long mile.

Between the colour, the embellishments, impeccable styling and that sexy open back, I was hooked.

When it came to the guys, it was a two-horse race between Eddie Redmayne and Chris Pine. Eventually, Chris won for his very dapper Ralph Lauren pinstripe three-piece suit.

Nina Dobrev In Monique Lhuillier - 2013 Met Gala

‘Vampire Diaries’ star Nina Dobrev went for it with the punk theme at the Met Gala, and is looking totally sexy on the red carpet.

Wearing a Monique Lhuillier corseted, black lace pantsuit accented with a black leather halter and tulle overskirt, Nina is beyond fierce.

Her Rupert Sanderson pumps are the perfect accent.

Her strong cat eye and side swept locks say punk without getting costumey, and her jewels add some glamour to the entire look.

I think Nina is one of the best of the night by going punk without looking like she’s dressed for Halloween. Do you agree?

Nina Dobrev In Thakoon - Origins GinZing Energy-Boosting Moisturizer Launch

Nina Dobrev made an appearance at the Origins GinZing Energy-Boosting Moisturizer launch in New York City on Friday.

The Vampire Diaries starlet went for a daring look by selecting Thakoon Spring 2013 frock.

The halterneck dress with a black-and-white criss-cross bodice make me wish I kick started my pre-spring gym training a few months earlier.

Showcasing more than a little bit of skin up top, the bottom half was a totally different story, with a contrasting demure black pleated skirt.

Opting for a fresh faced look and simple top knot, Nina styled her look with black Jimmy Choo Fitch sandals – a celebrity favourite – and a silver ring.

While this won’t be everyone’s cup of tea, I have to say it’s a risk that paid off. It’s on trend plus she has the body to wear it so why not?

Nina Dobrev In Versace - ‘The Great Gatsby’ World Premiere

Nina Dobrev joined Florence Welch and Carey Mulligan on the red carpet on Wednesday night for ‘The Great Gatsby’ world premiere held at Avery Fisher Hall at the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts in New York City.

The ‘Vampires Diaries’ actress put her best foot forward, as always, wearing a sultry Versace Spring 2013 frock.

Styling the look with gold accessories proved to be a wise choice considering the gold accents which decorated her black frock. She opted for Rupert Sanderson ‘Elba’ pumps, with an added kick of a crystallized heel, and a Jimmy Choo black clutch with a gold frame.

Her enviable glossy locks were swept to one side, with Susan Foster jewels rounding out the look.

Nina Dobrev In Max Mara - 2nd Annual 25 Most Powerful Stylists Luncheon

Continuing her chic streak, Nina Dobrev strutted out a trendsetting statement at the second annual 25 Most Powerful Stylists Luncheon on Wednesday in California, hosted by ‘The Hollywood Reporter’ and Jimmy Choo.

‘The Vampire Diaries’ starlet attended the event with her stylist, Ilaria Urbinati, who also looks after Bradley Cooper, Jason Clarke, Armie Hammer, Krysten Ritter, Chris Evans, Ian Somerhalder and Joel Edgerton.

The actress was red-haute in her Max Mara one-shoulder jumpsuit. The colour was chosen in honor of Ilaria and Nina’s first outfit together—that jaw-dropping red Donna Karan gown from the 2011 Emmy Awards, which really put Nina on the fashion map.

Those Jimmy Choo ‘Biel’ wedges also had a golden moment, bringing a shot of metallic shine to this ensemble as did her Devi Kroell clutch.

This time, a red lippie didn’t come out to play. In keeping with the more casual, daytime vibe, Nina went for a lighter, nude pout and straight, side-parted locks.

Via twitter Ilaria said that she picked this red look in honour of her first look together with Nina.  This was the red Donna Karan Atelier gown which is in the RCFA Hall of Fame.

Nina Dobrev In Elie Saab - John Varvatos 10th Annual Stuart House Benefit

Nina Dobrev was back on the red carpet on Sunday afternoon to support the John Varvatos 10th Annual Stuart House Benefit in Los Angeles, California.

The ‘Vampire Diaries’ actress wore yet another Elie Saab frock, this time from the Spring 2013 collection.

As a huge fan of Nina’s style and Elie Saab’s work, I should love this look, but I don’t.

It was my least favourite look from the designer’s Spring 2013 collection.

Where this vanilla-and-charcoal dress with a full skirt falls down for me is at the fold-over details on the bodice. It bothered me back in October when it took to the runway and it bothers me even more so now.

It’s such a shame because I love the colours against Nina’s olive skin, plus the stripes are on trend and the lace bodice is really pretty.

A metallic-silver Jimmy Choo ‘Carmen’ clutch and grey suede Pollini sandals accessorized her look, with Nina’s usual routine of flawless, barely-there makeup providing the finishing touches.
